Vermont Historical Society

The Vermont Historical Society engages both Vermonters and "Vermonters at heart" in the exploration of our state's rich heritage. Our purpose is to reach a broad audience through our outstanding collections, statewide outreach, and dynamic programming. We believe that an understanding of the past changes lives and builds better communities.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Vermont Historical Society is CLOSED to the public until further notice. This includes the Museum in Montpelier and the History Center & Library in Barre. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact (802) 479-8500, with any questions. Visit our Update page for information on evolving initiatives and the latest information on reopening plans.
